  1. 12 oz. Yellowfin Tuna Fillets
  2. 1⁄2 cup Flour
  3. 1 each Egg
  4. 1⁄2 cup White Sesame Seeds
  5. 2 Tbsp. Black Sesame Seeds
  6. 1⁄2 cup Vegetable / Canola Oil
  7. 1⁄2 cup Kikkoman® Teriyaki Baste & Glaze
  8. 1⁄2 tsp. Wasabi Powder
  9. 1⁄2 cup *Seaweed Salad*
  1. Place flour, beaten egg mixture and mixed sesame seeds separately, in 3 shallow dishes.
  2. Pat both sides of Yellowfin Tuna fillets first in seasoned flour, then in the egg wash mixture then lastly in the sesame seed mixture to create a sesame seed "crust" on both opposite sides of the fillets.
  3. Heat oil in a non-stick skillet to medium hot.
  4. Place the fillets in the hot oil and pan-sear approximately 2 to 3 minutes on each side (turning over carefully) to achieve a "medium" doneness. Cook longer on each side if you want the tuna fillets to be cooked to a full doneness.
  5. Remove fillets and pat gently on a paper towel to absorb any excess oil then place on a serving plate.
  6. Heat together Teriyaki Baste and Glaze with Wasabi Powder and serve on the side or over fillets. Top with the *Seaweed Salad (optional) as a garnish.
